No TitanFlex bikes at Kona?
Quote | Reply
I looked a couple of times at the complete bike list Dan has posted from Kona. Saw a number of SR's, but no TitanFlex's.

So, guess most have no desire to ride beam bikes. Wonder why?

I see there was one Zipp

Scott Molina raced Kona, so I'm guessing there was at least one TitanFlex there.

I do not think he was racing his Titan this year though.

And a sweet ride it was! I think there is a picture of it in the background of one of kerstrelkerri's photos.

yes, looks like you're right. we had no information on #835. i don't know how we missed him. p'raps he rolled his bike into transition the morning of the race (a few apparently did). i don't know.

He has been known to hit the couch and let the wife sleep on the bed so he can sleep with his Titan..maybe this happened the night before Kona..

I want to know who rode the Bike Friday! Hey, he/she saved a few bucks on bike transport.

GOOD! How did I miss that on the list? I guess I'll have to start wearing my glasses even when looking at the computer from now on!

just for fun, I'm now thinking about trying to get in with my road bike, just so I can see Quattro Assi on the list!

Dave,
There were four TitanFlex bikes in Kona this year. Richard Nixon, Dr. Sherry Coons, Dick Nordquest and Rich Clark (who was the 65-69 age group winner).
Scott Molina did not ride his because he raced the Worlds in Hawaii the prior week, where UCI rules disallow boom bikes...combined with the hassle of transporting two bikes from and to New Zealand.

Thanks Tom. I think Jim is hoping to stop by and see you on Nov 18th.

I am still trying to get a hold of Rick Ashabranner in Livermore so I can ask if I can try his bike out.

Last year I had my Wheeler Ti there and it somehow wasn't included on the list :(

yes, you're right tom. and what makes it doubly embarrassing is that we had this right on our spreadsheet (except for nixon) and somehow just skipped it, or missed it.

i've made the appropriate change on the website.
